Simon Meienberg graduated with a Master of European Studies in Design at KISD – Köln International School of Design, having studied for two years at Politecnico di Milano and ENSCI – Les Ateliers in Paris. In his master’s thesis Making Home, he was researching the practices of home-making and appropriation of space by migrant communities in the urban and socio-political networks of Paris and Cologne. With his doctoral research Borderlands – Migrant Spacing between Autonomy and Control (working title) he aims to contribute to a profound epistemic knowledge about migrant’s space production and its operative potential and diverse formulations amidst decolonial power struggles.
